What it Means to be a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law
When you're going to court, you need to be confident that you don't have just another average attorney on your side. With so much at stake, you need an actual specialist – someone who knows the laws and not only says that they are proficient, but has proven it. This is why you need a Board Certified Specialist. The State Bar of California provides the opportunity for lawyers to become certified in eleven different areas of the law. This is to "identity the public attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in the specialty fields and to encourage competence."
What does this mean for you?
It means that should you hire a lawyer that is a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law – the way that Takakjian & Sitkoff are. By doing this, you can be confident knowing that you have a lawyer who has been proven to have the knowledge you need to handle your case.
Eligibility Requirements for Certification
To even be eligible to become Board Certified, a lawyer must have been actively practicing law for a minimum of five years with 25% of their time completely dedicated to the practice area in which they are seeking certification. They must also be an active member in good standing with the State Bar of California and have demonstrated proficiency in several different designated tasks, shown proper educational experience and pass a written examination. They will also be held under an independent inquiry and review, including submitting several references, to determine proficiency in their specified area of practice.
